scheme for the presidential election in their state in time for 2016. the republican governor and the majority leader in the senate have ball said that they support that idea for pennsylvania. the beltway is supposedly fixated on elections and election process, but here is an election process story that could use some beltway fixation. if you want to look into a yourself, we have built a tool kit of links on the story at our web site. thanks for being with us tonight. it's time for the last word with loans or adonal. have a great night. >> the assailant had a 100 clip magazine. now had his weapon not jammed, got knows how many more people would have been killed. in newtown, some of those children were riddled with # 1 11 bullet holes in a first grader. high-capacity magazines are our view are not worth the risk [ applause ] >> vice president biden then explained why this time is different. there are some who say why the most powerful voice in this debate belongs to those to save lives. i think they are wrong. this time, this time will not be like times that have come before. n
elections, but this committee is rigged. >> and she ran the nominating committee in 2012. there is a new committee in effect now. but the way the elections work, it is sort of like a communist politburo, nobody knows who is on there. >> you just finding out who is on there is difficult. >> absolutely, and supporters of the nra, but some claim it is a sham election. they hand-pick the candidates for the nra elections that get on the ballot. and 29 out of 31 candidates on the ballot are in fact picked by the nominating committee. every year, one or two get on by a petition of 250 members or more. the result is, the election is a done deal before the ballots go out. and pro-nra bloggers entered a complaint, that i don't know if i will fill it out, it is a waste of time, there is no discussion or debate in the process. it is simply about rubber stamping about what the nominating committee has already done. and ultimately it is a way the board and the paid executive officers that are chosen by the board to keep themselves and people loyal to them in power. >> and this is the way this guy -- d
to enact the redmap scheme for the election in their state in time for 2016. the state's republican governor and majority leader in the senate have said that they support that idea or pennsylvania. the beltway is fix sated on election process. in the meantime if you want to look into it yourself we have built a toolkit on our website. thank you for being with us tonight. >> this is common sense. this conversation is long overdue. there is no reason we can't do this. all out panic from the right wing. president has this king complex. nothing he is propose iing woul have prevented connecticut. >> what the bheep ble[ bleep ] doing? >> the nra has the fight of the century. >> those are crazy people. >> it wasn't about the president's daughters. >> of course it was he mentioned the president's kids. that is so crazy. they are never going to get middle america and they are going to lose this debate. >> today the obama administration took it's campaign outside the white house. >> i know as well as anyone having written the first assault weapons ban that the industry will do whatever they c
at 12:01 or thereabouts, everyone in the process will be looking to their next election except for the president. so his clock moves faster than anyone els as he looks broader and farther, everyone else with a stake in the system will be looking narrower and more closely at their next election. so it'll be very tough. there's also the mathematical reality reality. four more years and the hardest job in the world means you have four more years of incredibly different problems. i promise you when we watch his successor drive up pennsylvania avenue in four years, we'll be talking about something we will not mention today. some unforeseen crisis. >> andrea mitchell what are you looking for over the next four years? >> you have a president who is actually energized by a feeling of possibilities. i think the way he took on guns that whole issue, that was not discussed at all during the campaign. he responded to the crisis. one of his opponents, ted cruz, the new tea-party supported senator said on "meet the press" yesterday, well he exploited it within minutes. t
. and on a totally legitimate issue. >> i think it is ridiculous that members of our elect, members of our congress are hiding behind this theory that we haven't defined what an assault weapon is. a bush master weapon is an assault weapon. people in the military say those are the kinds of guns we use when we are fighting wars. >> i think it was interesting that david keeb de n defends it saying it has the ability to fire off a lot of rounds quicklism so it would be in convenient to ban it. can you imagine how long it would take to have to change magazine clips? >> my mission for these segments that we are doing is to get one truth straight in each segment. let's get it straight that what rubio said is wrong. that what the president is proposing would have changed the outcome, yes the crazy kid would have stolen his mother's gun but his mother would have not been able to obtain the gun and we would not have had 26 tragedies inside that school. he would not have been able to kill that many kids and teachers. >> absolutely. they go after the weapons, the ammunition and the screening which like so many
that dr. king talked about 50 years ago been fulfilled, would to re-election of president obama? >> i think you cannot deny that we have made tremendous progress and the election of -- re- election of president obama is another milestone moment in civil rights history, but we still have a long way to go as far as racial reconciliation in america, building what dr. king called the beloved community. tomorrow, yes, it is a milestone moment, not only for the president, but for america's quest for racial reconciliation. >> we have two experts. john mcconnell worked with george bush on his inaugural address. terry edmonds spent eight years working with bill clinton. we talked about the reference to dr. king. your former boss making reference to abraham lincoln in his second inaugural address. >> we will get that ready in just a moment. let's go to the phones. curtis from akron, ohio. >> thank you for taking my call. it is a pleasure to be on the air. i had the privilege, when i was 20 years old, i was on the executive board of kent state democrats. me and some of the members of the executi
to come out who are still elected representatives of the party. one, to say hey, let's have a real conversation here and not just hide behind the nra and its rhetoric of fear. >> michael, do you think there are any republicans that will vote for any of the proposals that were put on the table today. >> i do. and i'll tell you why. it's the numb befrs that you show in the first segment today, those poll numbers. that's where the rubber meets the road here. it's a turning point and one that the party better get in front of. >> at this point in time, the only voice the gop is really hearing are the crazy ones. so you might be right, michael, susan, any other republicans who are out there. but as the debate is being framed, we don't see any real republicans in leadership positions taking a moderate -- >> michael, i hope you're correct. >> the obama campaign apparatus is going to take on the nra. we'll ask if the president will hit the road to make his case directly to the american people. then find out how survivors are reacting to the president's plan. sandyhook's top educator gives a
. >> good afternoon. i am the first elected of newtown, the scene of the most horrific event that took place at sandy hook elementary school in which we lost 26 children and staff members. i am here to show support for those initiatives late out today by vice president biden and president obama. both of those members said our world has changed because of what happened at sandy hook. par contest as has been raised. we have the obligation to address. if that is so, change will take place. i would hate to find myself a year from now reading about another of that -- another event. i truly believe the will of the people make a difference. i am calling on everyone to have the courage to stand up and help us make that difference. we should never again visit a tragedy such as we had in newtown. i call on everyone of you as mothers and fathers and members of a reasonable society to know it is time for us to make a change. please do everything you can to support common sense policies. we need to know that we are the answer to this problem. thank you. >> hi, i'm president of the brady campaign. i come
back, fdr broke the unwritten code of serving more than two terms. he was elected to four terms. in today's modern age, could we have more than two terms for any president? guest: great question. >> you worked for ronald reagan. if his health was better, of course, would he have run for a third term? guest: i doubt it. he talked about it after he left office. he was going to campaign for appeal of that amendment. he thought the american people should be able to vote for anyone wanted to vote for. it is very difficult to imagine after eight years of office -- we've used up our presidents. that is why this string of two- term presidents is really so unusual. we have a string of one-term presidencies before that. that became the norm. host: let me share with ronald reagan said in january of 1987. state of union address. there was the iran-contra sc andal. [video clip] >> i have one major regret. i took a risk with our action in regards to iran. it did not work. for that, i accept full responsibility. it was not wrong to try to save lives. certainly, it was not wrong to try to secur
, with republicans here in washington, since his re-election, certainly the way he handled the fiscal cliff and i want to point to a clip of the president and his press conference earlier this week. take a look: >> president barack obama: they have suspicions about social security. they have suspicions about whether government should make sure that kids in poverty are getting enough to eat. >> chris: now we learn that the president is taking his campaign organization and transforming it into an issue advocacy group, organizing for action. is it fair to say that the president has given up on the inside game of negotiating here in washington and is much more interested in bringing outside pressure to bear on the people up on capitol hill. >> chris, you have to do both and i think that is a lesson from the first four years, you can't do one or the other. and i think we'll continue and, listen, the fiscal cliff deal you talked about, we have just about every republican senator who voted for this. we have cut taxes with the republicans and cut spending with the republicans and democrats, on evaluatbvi
my own take on it. i have my own system to predicting elections. it's called the dees the white house. and it's how well think party holding the white house has governed, whether or not the sitting president is running again. so if barack obama wants to extend -- which is very difficult, have three democratic presidents in a row, it is all going to depend on his success in governing and leading the country. if he is success, and comes out as a very popular president who has achieved something, then there's an excellent chance that the democrats are capture another term in the white house. if he doesn't. if he leaves as a failed president like george w. bush, then we'll get a change in party power in 2016 and this is true regardless of the identity of the democratic nominee. i think barack obama would very much like to be one of those rare presidents who passes on his success to another candidate of his own party. that doesn't happen very often. it happened with reagan and bush, and before that you have to go back to roosevelt and truman. >> michael: yeah,
republicans elected in 1994 and then became a clinton conspiracyialyial theorist. so i think the voters of his district know how to treat that behavior, by senning him home. >> stephanie: a new poll finds that president obama's approval rating 55% approve 43% disapprove. so i -- doesn't that make you crazy, karl when these republicans go on and say the american people -- >> well they mean, you know the people in the try corner hats. the various koch brothers. >> stephanie: yeah, all of the koch brothers. >> yeah. by the way they would be in a much better place as a party, and we would be in a much better place as a country if they knew what the american people wanted. they will win elections from time to time in the near future but unless they change their stances on issues, unless they come around to issues that are popular with young people and single people and women and gay people and people of color -- >> stephanie: most carbon-based life forms. >> yeah unless they come around on those issues in 15 years there won't be a republican party like it looks today
respond to incentives. incentive is re-election. in a lot of southern districts most of these people are hunters. most are gun owners and they don't like people touching their guns. they don't need to be nra members to have that feeling. the nra is powerful. these outside groups get more credit than they deserve. there's a bunch of people that own guns they don't need an nra sticker to feel passionate about that issue. >> we'll see you later on "morning joe." now to a developing overseas where american citizens are among dozens of people being held in a hostage standoff. this is unfolding now in the is a had-- sahara desert. dozens of hostages who work at the plant including americans. officials say at least two people were killed during the raid. the militants claim the take is revenge for france's military operation against rebels in neighboring mali. the u.s. providing assistance to that effort. take a listen to leon panetta talking about this standoff. >> by all indications this is a terrorist act and the united states strongly condemns these kinds of terrorist acts. it's a very
interesting thing to compare him to would be right after the 2010 elections when they brought in daly which signaled that they wanted to change their approach inside the white house, wanted to reach out to business, wanted to try to reach out to republicans, have better relationships with the house and senate. what this pick signals is that it's going to be a more combative white house, continue to be a pretty insular white house. i think some of the bellyaching speci internally, it's another white guy in leadership role inside the white house. it signals to me an approach where they're ready for combat. we see that in the legislation they're talking about for the next year that he wants to be pushing. and that also just the reality that the next two years are not going to be a pleasant two years for relationships between the white house and congress. nobody's expecting a grand bargain anymore. i think the chance -- they had a good chance to have one a couple months ago. they have almost no chance to get one now. the reality is it's going to be grind it out for the next couple years. he has
reminds me when i read that of the comment during the last election from then senator now president obama about people clinging to their guns. and bill clinton saying politically you need to be careful with this. >> bill clinton grew up in arkansas and knows this kind of stuff in his bones. he knows the danger that it can present to the democratic party. they have lost mid terms in the past because of the gun issue. al gore, clinton talked specifically about al gore taking an unpopular side of a gun issue in colorado, lost colorado and lost the presidency. also democrats are concerned about this issue for 2014. in the senate you have red state democrats up for reelection in alaska and arkansas and montana, in south dakota. and in laz. a bunch of red states and they are very worried about taking positions that will lose the seats. >> take a look at a couple of polls because the numbers are interesting. this one says in the debate on guns which is more important to protect they asked the people that were polled. 51% said the constitutional right to own a gun and 40% said citizens to be prot
